Riedel Wine Decanter Improves Texture, Taste With A Shake


Riedelís newest mouth blown decanter, Face to Face, continues a legacy of innovation and creativity for wine enthusiasts. First and foremost, the Face to Face decanter increases the enjoyment of wine by aerating it to develop aromas and flavors. The graceful, soaring Riedel decanter features two concave profiles facing one another in the interior of the vessel. This innovative element doubles as both a bold design and as paddles. By shaking the wine until a foam cap develops, it achieves the maximum effect of oxygen on young tannins. The result is more satisfying, intense fruitiness on the mid-palate and a more rounded texture.

The newest Riedel decanter shape is further defined by a stripe of black crystal running the length of one side, a detail worked into the piece during the glassmaking process. This creates an elegant contrast, with one black face juxtaposing a clear one.

ďOur Face to Face decanter had many complications in its creation,Ē says Georg Riedel. ďA piece like this is not easy to produce and we spent 18 months perfecting the form and function of the Face to Face decanterĒ. Bowed on one side and slightly hollowed on the other, the decanter nestles snuggly in the hand for ease of pouring. This ícomplicationí requires a process even more delicate then the crafting of the internal faces. The Riedel glassmaker reheats the decanter after it is formed and skillfully applies gentle pressure to the rear-a very precise task.

Go face to face with the art of decanting with Riedelís newest unique and functional craftsmanship, and may the good wine flow.
